The Startup Roadmap: Chapter 6 - Setting Up Your Business December 30, 2019

In this module of the SCORE Startup Roadmap, sponsored by FedEx and ZenBusiness, you’ll take the first, exciting steps toward making your business plan a reality.

You will choose an official name for your business, get a tax identification number and open a business bank account. You’ll also select and register a legal structure for your business and get any licenses and permits that your location and industry require.

Have you viewed other chapters of The SCORE Startup Roadmap? You don’t have to view them all—only the ones you and your mentor think are appropriate.

The Startup Roadmap is designed to detail every step in creating your successful dream business. Working with a SCORE mentor increases your chances for success. Good luck on your journey!
